On Tuesday May 24, 2016, Yeni Kuti, eldest child of the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Kuti got a surprise marriage proposal from her longtime partner, Theo Lawason at the Prince of Anthony Hotels (formerly called called Hotel Parisona), the same place her late dad contracted his historic marriage of 27 wives.

The event was a surprise party put together by Mallam Abdul Okwechime and Akin Adeoya, of the Hotels 1960, owners of the Prince of Anthony, to mark her 55th birthday.

The birthday party which saw an impromptu performance from Yeni’s younger brother and Afrobeat maestro, Femi Kuti started at 7pm with an emotional outburst from the guest of honour, Yeni, upon walking into a hall full of family and friends waiting to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to her.

All day long she had thought Theo Lawson, her fiancée was taking her on a get-away, to a place where no one would disturb them.

When Theo finally picked her up at the New Afrika Shrine, after her programme ‘Your View,’ on TVC, it was indeed to a serene hotel in Anthony Village, Prince of Anthony.

When Theo ushered Yeni into the hotel’s Chinese restaurant as part of her private birthday treat, she almost collapsed, because waiting there were friends and family including Femi Kuti, her colleagues at TVC, the Kuti clan, childhood friends, and a host of other associates all numbering about 50, who burst into a ‘Happy Birthday’ song.

Femi Kuti, Seun Kuti and Dr. Dotun Ransome-Kuti – the eldest of the Kuti clan and Kunle Kuti all took turns to pour encomiums on her.


And when Theo Lawson, her partner of over five years proposed marriage to Yeni, the hall erupted with cheers.

Other musicians who performed at the birthday bash include Ade, guitarist and singer Aduke and the ageless Jimi Solanke.
